P90X - 2014 - Day 8
I saw this about two months and I heard about it about 6 months I am assuming. I guess I am really interested in seeing this movie. And really for all the wrong reason. I think that you faithful Readers, and not the people who are in faith, know that I do like movies and I especially like movies that maybe Oscar contenders around this time of the year.
Foxcatcher. This is my pick and I think Steve Carrell may just pull out an Oscar. I know I know - very arrogant to say since I had not seen the movie, the movie is not out and I am just basing this on the trailers I have seen to date. I will admit I like the way he looks and the way he talks. Not necessarily the accent, but his facial looks when he is talking. And what about Chantum Tatum. I know I probably spelled his name wrong. But his acting looks great and he looks perfect for the role he is playing. I just found out the plot of the movie about three weeks ago, but only in general. It's about wresting, Olympics and two brothers and a tycoon. I think. lol
I love the music in the trailer, the beat, the look, the mood and I am excited.
Steve being in a drama as opposed to a comedy. I do not care for Steve, except when I saw him in the 40 year old virgin. He just does not do it for me. Dunno why. However, with this new movie I think he will be known for more than just a comedian.
Ok Kenpo X was last night. I sweated, but not as much as the previous days. And I think that was due to me learning the Kenpo X moves once more. It has been two years and honestly I never did the Kenpo outside my living room. I did like the stretching and I can actually see me stretching further and better. Anyway, the work out was about another hour and I did it without any problems. As soon as I got home I stuck in the DVD and got going. I did not want to wait any longer since that is an hour I have to set aside. Anyway, Kenpo I will have to get back into rthym after a couple or few more times. I struggled a bit more than I should have, but I still got my workout and I brought it.
I had a beer last night as well - another Corona. So, that has brought the beer count to 4 bottles. On another note I am happy to say that I am 11 days Coca-Cola free. To me that is amazing considering that I am not struggling or yearning to have a Coca-Cola. I do have a 1 Liter of Coca-Cola in my cabinet at work (and you Readers may have noticed that red cap in the water picture I posted the other day). It is there since I bought that September 26 and I did not have the heart to throw away or give away. Again, there may be a slip, and just in case I need to have a taste, a drink, a couple swallows, or have to down that fucking Coca-Cola down! LOL. But again Readers, none of those reasons are coming up and I only see that red cap every time I open my cabinet at work.
Getting back to Kenpo X - the routines that I had trouble with coordination - Twist & Pivot with hook and uppercut, step drag/high-low punch, step drag/claw/low punch, front shuffle with high block/low punch and hook/uppercut/low side kick. Readers, if you are a P90X participant and perhaps about to do or doing I am posting the routines that I am having issues with so you may compare and see if you are having the same issues as me. Or I as you depending on the point of view. And I am sure after a couple more times I will be able to do with no problem what so ever. I do not have a heart rate monitor so I did not monitor myself.
And that is about all I have to add at the moment. Today is either a Rest day or X stretch. I do not know at the moment what I am going to do, but I probably should do the X stretch since I did take a few days off.
Until the next time
